1) Don't Let Your Leisure Activities Take a Back Seat
When faced with a stressful and demanding lifestyle, you may tend to sacrifice your recreational activities. However, depriving yourself of enjoyment can have an adverse impact. Even if your schedule is tight, it's crucial to make time for personal enjoyment.
2) Reframe Your Thinking Around Stressors
Becoming aware of your thoughts and understanding how thoughts can impact your emotions, which impact behaviors, can give your more control over stressors. A leading therapy used for anxiety and depression is cognitive behavioral therapy or CBT. This therapeutic approach helps you reframe thoughts around a stressor - helping to manage emotions and reduce stress.
3) Start Therapy
If self-help isn't enough, contact a mental health therapist. They'll be able to assess your situation, help you understand it, and put a plan in place to address the problem.
If you or someone you know is overwhelmed by stress, I can help.
